Well after 7 months advance booking we arrive to a cold change in weather and closed pool for maintenance, but the place fit our needs, the staff friendly, and at least hot tubs open. Our unit (private ownership) was an upscale décor overlooking the pool and two balconies. The second unit -that Blackcomb Peaks Accommodation honored the request our request to have them together, a family event- was less updated but still very comfortable and cozy. It is a few minutes walk down the slope to Blackcomb Village then a 5 minute slight decline to Whistler Village ...very acceptable. Kitchen was well stocked, beds were very comfortable (even the hide-a-bed), temperature control was great, and plenty of extra bedding. The pool opened the last day and we enjoyed it very much -an excellent trip and all want it booked next year.
We booked this in advance online through a "special" Blackcomb Peaks was offering. 9 nights for $1600.00. Pros: 1) Very good location- right next door to Chateau Whistler :-) Ski in & out. 2) Nice unit- all fairly new inside / nice furnishings & art. 3) Full kitchen with all utensils including a blender - coffee maker- hot water heater- pots / pans & dishes- 2 bathrooms (no tubs) just showers but they are nice. All new. 4) King bed in one room - queen bed & a bunk in the other. Clothes hangers are limited- BYOH; only closets (no dressers) but lots of extra hooks for hanging coats. 5) Free WIFI :-) - TV's in every room with Shaw cable. Nice little Fireplace in living-room (that actually works.) 6) Pool, small gym and hot tubs outside 7) Small deck with BBQ 8) Nice treed view outside 9) Nice lobby & TV room beside the lobby. The cons are that there is no longer a sauna (wahhh!) The unit is quite a bit smaller than the photos. It's sort of noisy outside from music, local construction & distant highway noises. Parking is not included = $17 per day. I would have rated it a bit higher but I've stayed at a lot of very good hotels up here over the years; whereby I'd give the Pan Pacific a (4) Westin (4.5) & Chateau (5)
We booked the Aspens on Blackcomb at 9:30pm on April 27/17 for six nights. The next morning we discovered that our daughter had already booked accommodation for us somewhere else in Whistler. I contacted the Aspens on Blackcomb and requested a waiver of the Reservation Fee of $230.25. Although the Aspens had a right to deny the request. they cancelled my reservation and agreed to waive the cancellation fee. I am very grateful and happy for their consideration and understanding.
We stayed at the Aspens in July. My son participated in a summer ski camp. The Aspens is a short walk to the lifts so it was an excellent location for us. We also really enjoyed the pool area. We will be back!
we stayed as part of a large group retreat. No bedding available for extra guests in rooms, terrible catering and food, no amenities that one would expect. The rooms were quite basic. Avoid if you can.
Our family has enjoyed the clean and comfortable rooms at the Aspens for many years. This spring break we stayed in unit 315, which was a comfortable and clean room facing the woods. After skiing all day it was nice to returning to our warm room and relax in the hot tub and heated pool. The location is amazing, really easy to walk into town for a bite to eat. The ski valet made the morning rush to get to the powder a lot easier. My only complain is that on multiple nights it was quite noisy until very late. On the first floor there is a funny little vending machine filled with many food basics, which may of come in handy one night when we didn't feel like going out and hadn't made it to the grocery store. All in all it was a wonderful stay!
I stayed at Apens before and it was great. The location is excellent and so was the staff and the overall stay. Not this time. We got a suite #131 right above the underground parking entrance. There was quite some noise in the evening with cars comming in. Moreover, there was some HVAC system or something like that going on and off right outside our suite making a lot of noise. It was like an airplane taking off. Got woken up at 10pm on Saturday and Friday. We paid tip dollars for this stay and the noise was unacceptable. It's just not fair to pay top dollars and to have to put up with this sub par experience. There are many ways to deal with this. For instance: install some proper windows with sound insulation - given how high the accommodation is to stay here, that should be possible; advertise those units as noisy and don't charge the same rates as for the ones that do now have these issues. I am sorry to say this, but it's just not ethical to not disclose the noise issue for that unit. I urge "management" to take their family and have a stay there... I raised this with the reception. They apprologised, "showed" empathy but could not do anything about it. They assured me they will "raise" it with management and that I will be called back the next day. Never heard from them. Very disappointing.
We spent 3 nights in March at this location, we really enjoyed the beautiful views of mountains! Great ski in and ski out location. Comfortable one bedroom apartment, cozy fireplace in the living room.
My family has been coming up to Whistler for almost 20 years. We actually have a timeshare there through Embark, which I have to say we are spoiled by, but when we can't get in, or go up more often we have rented several times through VRBO. We come up both during the winter and summer months 1 to 4 times a year. When we do, we often plan our meals in which means we are bringing up a lot of our own food. The unit we rented here had two sets of kitchen cabinets locked off so there was literally no place to store our own food. I had to keep it in the entry in the storage bins I brought it up in. Also, plan on paying an additional $17/night for parking. No washers and dryers in the unit was known when I rented the unit, but sad nonetheless. And finally they have a strict no skis in your unit policy ($75 fine if you do) but a concierge service when you get off the slopes. Good luck getting them in a timely fashion when you want to hit the slopes the next day. One guy waited over 15 minutes just for someone to show up! Secrete, they have a after hours locker you can use, just ask for the key at the front desk. Not an individual locker, but our skis were safe :)
We booked this apartment through airbnb. Ski in and ski out made switching with my husband while on baby watch so much easier :) Loved the apartment, great kitchen! Had to pay $17 a day for parking which wasn't too bad, meant your car was covered in. We had an amazing holiday, will definitely be back.
